In the early 1980’s a retired California police officer named Leonard Villahermosa spoke about how his work in helping to break down PCP laboratories over the past few years had impacted his life. “My physical and emotional health had deteriorated greatly,” Villahermosa said. “I had never felt this bad in my life. I had severe headaches. They were so bad that just the vibration of a person’s voice would upset me. I felt sick and worn out all the time. I would start a fight with somebody over absolutely nothing. My wife and others started saying that I was acting like a crazy man, and I thought I was about to go crazy. I eventually didn’t wear my gun as I was afraid of what I might do.” Villahermosa had not been injured by a bullet in the line of duty, but his life had nevertheless been severely affected by the work he had done for the public good in making sure that the PCP labs he helped to dismantle could no longer turn out dangerous drugs. In the process, Villahermosa had been exposed to toxic substances which had caused serious and lasting damage to his physical and emotional health.
Villahermosa’s story is told in the Summer 1984 issue of the Journal of California Law Enforcement, in an article titled “Chemical Hazards in Law Enforcement” by Robert B. Amidon. The author is an attorney in Los Angeles, a former federal prosecutor and a commander in the U.S. Naval Reserves and a specialist in naval intelligence. In the article, Amidon discusses the fact that the problems that Villahermosa was facing were not at all unique among his fellow law enforcement officers in California and other areas of the country. “We live in a chemical environment, to state the obvious,” Amidon says. “The police officer himself becomes routinely involved in assignments which can cause him to be exposed to a vast array of deadly toxins.” This includes not only the hazards of dealing with cases where the officer might come into contact with illegal drugs, but also other scenarios where chemical exposure is a likelihood, such as through the smoke of an apartment fire, chemical spills in industrial sites, harmful chemicals emitted by utility poles, to name only a few examples. We are used to the idea that police officers place their lives on the line, but normally in the context of shoot-outs with criminals and similar situations, rather than cases where the officer is being injured or even killed slowly by repeated exposure to hazardous chemicals, often with permanent effects.
Narconon Sauna Detox Handles More than Drugs
In the article, Amidon points to a solution to this long-term accumulation of the effects of chemical exposure, the Hubbard Method. This is essentially the same system which is used on the Narconon program in the sauna detoxification step. During this program, a person spends several hours per day for weeks at a stretch, with the purpose of sweating out accumulated toxic residues. This process is catalyzed by the intake of a precise regimen of nutritional supplements which are chosen for their ability to mobilize toxic residues stored in the fatty tissues of the body, along with moderate exercise to kickstart this process, and all of it supported with a balanced diet, plenty of rest, and adequate hydration. The Hubbard Method has proven to be effective at ridding the body of toxic accumulations, as in the Narconon program where it is used to target the drug residues that the person has after years of addiction. The Hubbard Method, however, is not at all limited to addiction treatment, and as Amidon demonstrates, it can be used for a wide variety of situations where a person’s health has been jeopardized by exposure to harmful chemicals. Countless people like Villahermosa have recovered from symptoms such as his through the Hubbard Method, getting what amounts to a fresh start in life.
